Llanymynech’s DISCOVERY DAY 17th May 2009

BACK TO THE PORTAL PAGE

Same date as 2008 but on Sunday this year. A day of sun and heavy rain. In spite of the weather, there was a resolute attendance and the day was a success. Many attractions, for example, music, traditional constructions, steam displays, story telling, food and drink, demonstration lime burning, wildlife and canal displays.
